reflects on everything else that we do, right?

A few more little goodies ~

I just SO love that I am able to utilize this wonderful crinkled muslin!
I knew it was beautiful the minute I pulled it out of the dryer ~
And yes, I'm am nuts but that's what makes me...ME!

I created five more of these sweet lavender sacques to sell ~

Sweet little things ~ it was such a pleasure creating with this beautiful, simple fabric.
But because it was all crinkled, it made it incredibly special!!!
Each sachet it filled totally with lavender buds ~ and wonderfully fragrant!
The studio smells heavenly right now.

I've listed them in my Etsy all under one listing as they are all just alike!

I hope you have the most wonderful Spring weekend....
my Mama and Daddy are coming into town today and I'm so glad!!
They're only staying for the night but you know,
we must always, always treasure the moments!!!

Thank you always for stopping by here :)

hugs and love,

Little crinkled goodies!

They are simple little sacks...filled completely with lavender buds ~
I don't know why, but I love the sack versions of my sachets.

Remember this muslin fabric that I washed and it got terribly twisted in my
old washer that has that thing in the center???

Then I threw it in the dryer, still twisted because I'm weird like that ~
I was just curious as to what it would look like!
Here's the result below...

Well, using some of the crinkled muslin, I made a few new lavender sachets ~
Of course using seam binding to cinch the tops and
lastly, adding a button or earring to finish them off.

These sweet little sacks are now listed in my Etsy shop!!

Thank you always for stopping by to see me ~

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday sweet friends,
hugs and love,

To my precious friends ~

A Friend's Greeting

I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me;
I'd like to be the help that you've been always glad to be;
I'd like to mean as much to you each minute of the day
As you have meant, old friend of mine, to me along the way.

I'd like to do the big things and the splendid things for you,
To brush the gray from out your skies and leave them only blue;
I'd like to say the kindly things that I so oft have heard,
And feel that I could rouse your soul the way that mine you've stirred.

I'd like to give you back the joy that you have given me,
Yet that were wishing you a need I hope will never be;
I'd like to make you feel as rich as I, who travel on
Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to lean upon.

I'm wishing at this special time that I could but repay
A portion of the gladness that you've strewn along my way;
And could I have one wish this year, this only would it be:
I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me.


I'm always so very thankful for you stopping by to visit my blog!!!

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

The river of creativity...

Sometimes the river flows at full force ~
rapidly moving...overflowing the banks even!

But sometimes, it's a simple trickle and guess what,
there's just nothing, nothing at all you can do about it.

This life we live takes over and sometimes it just doesn't happen
how we planned it out in our heads!

Anyway ~ I did finally finish these two sweet "flea bags"!
One is already sold but the other has been listed

I've used gorgeous old wedding lace, more vintage laces and doilies...
antique buttons and even a vintage watch face with tiny pearls!

They are such a wonderful size, perfect for slinging across your chest
and hitting the antique market!!!!

So how's your river flowing these days???

Wishing you a beautiful, creative and wonderful Monday precious friends ~
hugs and love,

Easily distracted...

When I should be working on my sweet little "flea bags" that have
been waiting to be embellished for almost a week now,
I decide to organize my lace!!!

I really didn't mean to but I've been looking for just the right pieces
to add to the flaps of the purses and got to thinking,
my lace collection is an absolute mess.

At first I started wrapping it around plain old shipping tags
but I thought about all the cabinet cards I have!
I've scanned most of them in to share with you so
I just thought I could wrap the lace
around them...having the subjects peeking through too!

I did wrap a few pieces around shipping tags but
abandoned that idea quickly ~
They were perfect for small pieces and delicate lace though...

The jumbled pile is looking better and better!!

But I still have a laundry basket full to organize...

And a small suitcase full too!!

I love these precious fragments from the past...
I feel honored to be their custodian for now ~
and if I give them a new life and purpose,
it's all the better!!!

Happy Friday my dear friends,
hugs and love,

Simply thankful ~

It's been one of those days that seem to slip away from you...
do you have those?
You look up at the time and can't believe how fast it's flown by
and you didn't accomplish near what you had in mind.

But it seems that at this time of my life I finally realize,
that it's OK to have days like that.
I'm just thankful to have the day, period.

Our lives can get so wrapped up in trying to get so many things done,
that we simply forget to enjoy the fact
that we have the gift of another day...
A day to enjoy our blessings,
love our family
and simply to be thankful.

A few repeat image gifts for you my sweet, sweet friends:

The best part of the day?
Loving on our grandbabies, watching Clara play and
hearing Murray's hearty belly laughs!!!

Wishing you a beautiful Wednesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

A beautiful blank canvas...

That's how I see these sweet babies ~
they are both wonderful blank canvases for me to
embellish and adorn!!!

The purses themselves are finished but the flaps?
They are what I'm going to add a little goodness to ~
Stay tuned :)

My heart aches for the victims of the Boston tragedy...
I so pray for healing for them, the families involved and for
peace in their hearts and lives.
I also pray for JUSTICE
that this evil person be found and held accountable
for their terrible actions.

Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday my sweet, sweet friends,
hugs and love,
